I have spent the entire day recovering from a nasty bug and I have done nothing but try to sleep the discomfort away. Safe to say I haven’t any time to come up with something to write about, today.
But I’ve come to realize a couple of things about knowing the value of our own hardwork. I just think that the world has made us all believe we have to learn to value our work less because that’s how you take your first step and make something big out of it. But it doesn’t have to be that way. We should be proud of our work and we should know to never undermine our efforts when the time comes, no matter how many people tell you that you can do so later.
Always remind yourself of how much effort you’ve put into something, and never forget that it is not a crime to want your work to be valued by others the same you do do. After all, nobody but you can understand the amount of time that has gone into making something come to life.
I think that we’ve all been taught to never want for more when we are being given what the world thinks is fair. But that’s not how things work! Progress, of course, doesn’t have to be monumental, but it does mean doing better than yesterday and creating more opportunities for yourself. It’s not fair that we are forced to feel inferior about our work after all the effort that has gone into it.
Remember this: if you don’t stand your ground about what is important to you and why it needs to be valued, nobody else would be able to understand what the big deal about your work is.
Give yourselves a pat on the back for knowing what your work is worth, today! Xx
